Hi,

I've not been spending so much time on ProIV RC recently, and I apologise for that.

However, this weekend, I'm going to upgrade the site to the new version of the forum software.

Last weekend I tested the upgrade on a test site, and it all looked fine, so I don't anticipate too many problems.

This will then allow me to enable automatic member applications again, since the new software has better detection of spam bots etc (I hope).

I'll also try to clear up all the problems with attached documents, as they seemed to have stopped working a while ago.

Rob.

Hi Rob
I'm sure it's a lonely furrow at times but the RC is much appreciated by us ProIV old timers... even though not many reasons to post lately as ProIV is so reliable these days :)
Regards
Rory

Thanks Rory :)

Well, I've upgraded it now.

Attachments are now working, but we seem to have lost most of the attachments from 2010. Not sure what happened there, sorry.

If you get any problems with the new forum then post here.

You probably need to log in with your username and password again.

If you have forgotten them, then just visit this page or give me a mail.

I've also enabled registrations again, so we will see how that goes.

Thanks,

Rob.

Yeah, looks alot better, doesn't it :)

However, I cant believe it, but within 30 minutes of me enabling the new site, I got a bot that registered an account, even though I have the newest version of CAPTCHA running :(

So, I have had to add a silly question to the registration page now, that I hope most 'humans' can answer :)

If they get past that, then I'll have to make the registrations have manual approval.

Rob.
